There are two main beliefs running here on earth.
One is the separation Paradigm. This uses fear and separation as its core beliefs and creates disharmony, non acceptance, resistance and fear.
The other is the unified paradigm which recognises that we are all one unified consciousness. This means all who are living in this belief are living in unity, peacefully and with what is.
Most of mankind operates in the separation paradigm yet All of nature, including every single creature, the spiritual realm and a few humans operate in the unified paradigm.
Why is mankind the one to be different?
Most of mankind isn't even aware that they are operating on a false belief and this belief of being separate creates fear. Look where that has taken the species over the centuries.
Most of mankind has taken someone else's belief, a man made belief based of fear and made it their own belief and blindly defended it, often to the death! Why has mankind not stopped to see what the foundations of their beliefs are based on?
Nature and the spiritual realm work in alignment with what is. Knowing they are not separate from anything else means they operate harmoniously with all that is.
Nature recognises that they are all in essence the same energy, vibrating at different rates. The same oneness, despite the form it appears to be in.
An example my teacher once told me was in regards to the ocean.
Imagine the ocean.
If you took a container and put the water from the ocean in it, is it not still the ocean? Does it become something else? It still has all the properties of the ocean, just in a different form.
So too we are all from one source, one awareness, vibrating differently and taking different forms because of this but our essence is still oneness.
We are still the one, same fundamental energy source, despite our form.
We are still connected and this can be felt and experienced through self inquiry and meditation, by being present, by being with what is rather than being consumed with thought.
One of the main objections that I hear when I discuss this is that we are more evolved than animals and plants as we have the capacity to think. What I find exceptional is that we take the capacity to think as something that automatically brings us something better. Does it? Is thought working for you in your life? Are you in control of what you think? Do you always feel in alignment with what is, with what serves you best? Do your thoughts bring peace and harmony and the betterment of all?
I think the answer is obvious by the state of the world. I see insanity everywhere, it has just become so normal that no one really questions it any more as it seems more normal than not.
I see insanity in how most of us function, in how must of us think, in how most governments and institutions operate, in what we as humans place our priorities and base our decisions on, in how we operate as a society, countries and on a global scale.
We operate from short term view based on separation. Of course it doesn't work because we are basing our decisions on an illusionary foundation.
A foundation that has been accepted but not explored.
If we live under the paradigm or set of beliefs that we are all separate, that he is different to me, then the world we live in seems fearful. Things outside of myself can hurt me, they can happen to me.
If we live under the paradigm or belief that we are all one, then fear doesn't make sense. It ceases to control you and underlie your decisions and experiences of the moment. There is no need for fear as we realise that what we are living in is in fact one energy, one awareness.
It does not mean that you don't take common sense precautions but once we have taken these precautions most of us stress and worry anyway. Precautions are taken to minimise risk and fear and yet they don't seem to have that effect. If you lock the door at night, make your house secure, how many people till lay awake fearful of an intruder or jump at noises in the dark?
Fear seems real because we have based our foundations on an illusion of separation.
With self inquiry, you will come to see that you are the very intelligence. the very thing you are looking for, it is there and has been all along. You have just forgotten or looked in the wrong place.
When we allow ourselves to turn towards what we are feeling in any moment, rather than running away, pretending its not there, avoiding it or burying it, we open the gateway to NOW. To being with what is.
Breath into now, be with what is, what ever you are feeling is the gateway into now.
The gateway into Being.
